“This is exactly the type of bold reform that Wisconsin needs to continue to move forward,” said Hilgemann. “Now is the time to take advantage of the state surplus and cut taxes for the hard working families of Wisconsin. Legislators in Madison need to decide if they are they are on the side of limited government and lower taxes or if they support more spending and higher taxes. We need a simpler tax code that is fair for everyone and significantly cuts income taxes.
